For his Opening Times commission, Patrick Goddard has produced Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap, a short video including spoken and musical elements that looks at the abstracting tendencies of contemporary high finance; where money no longer bears any relation to the production of useful goods or services. Music for the video was commissioned from the London based band Henge, playing a Doom Metal cover version of ABBA’s classic song, Money Money Money.

Featuring: Regina Lazarenko and Patrick Goddard with specially commissioned music from Henge.

For her commission Williams has produced a collation of nine short video clips arranged in a grid which allude to the language and structure of adult-content websites. These clips magnify and examine the often heavily fetishised surfaces of materials which include fur, leather, cream cakes, ceramics and bodily fluids.  Each clip features a sound composition by London-based musician Patchfinder, simultaneously responding whilst heightening and creating ruptures with the overt sensuality of the imagery. All of the videos can be downloaded and watched for free. The changing images behind the clips also hyperlink to a seemingly tangential selection of website pages.

Grey dust is covering the trees. It makes them sparkle like silver leaves in the wind. The sky is hanging on large billboards.

He hears the rain drumming on the window and looks at the shadow falling from the lit-up rose. She takes his hand. Place your fingers on the black mirror. Close your eyes. Try to relax. He paints a landscape. The thick ink touches the paper, and the water runs in circles through the mountains. Each night he paints the same motif again and again.

For her artwork commission, Megan Rooney has created Tilia americana, a set of five sequential, multi-framed videos with an accompanying narrated text. The videos incorporate elements of drawing, sculpture and performance, portraying women obscured by water-coloured pillow cases in different suburban situations. The audio track accompanying the videos is a voiceover of the artist reading a fractured and dreamlike prose poem.
